The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn’t relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.

She said: “It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman.”

The towering actress reveals that she had numerous setbacks in her career before landing a prized role as Brienne of Tarth in the hit show, adding: “I found it so frustrating, particularly at the beginning, because I would be told, ‘Sorry love, you’re too tall.’ At one stage I was like, ‘I’ll give this another six months and if this persists, ‘I’ll become a nun.’ “

For her role as warrior Brienne, Gwendoline trained how to fight with swords and ride horses and says it’s “empowering” to know she can “break a man’s nose with my elbow.”

"I do all my own stunts and come away with bruises and scratches. After one scene I was absolutely covered in bruises all down one leg and up one arm. But it’s worth it. It’s quite fun. I enjoy knocking around with the boys."

I cannot get enough of this woman. She deserves all the awards.

For my Pilipin@ Blasians. This is for you. <3

Especially those who feel insecure in being who they are. To those I’ve talked to on here who have messaged me and told me how they feel ashamed to identify with their Pilipin@ heritage for the fact people tell them they don’t “look” Pilipin@, or that they weren’t really raised in this side of their heritage.

Know that you aren’t alone and should be proud of who you are and where you came from.

Residents in Tacoma, Wash. have been threatened with prosecution by the city for painting crosswalks on streets where cars have continually hit pedestrians.
The group responsible, “Citizens for a Safer Tacoma,” says they would rather go to jail than see another person hit by a vehicle. The group, composed of concerned citizens including 15 of whom were hit by cars themselves, were denied help after going to the city.
The city, which seemingly doesn’t have the time or money to install official crosswalks, which cost roughly $1,000 each, ironically has been able to send out road crews to immediately remove four of the citizen’s crosswalks, a removal process that costs roughly $1,000 per crosswalk.
The City said it would prosecute anyone who would make a crosswalk.

BUT.
WHAT.
ABOUT.
THE.
RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

More proof it’s not about “The children” only about obedience 

it should also be noted that tacoma is a city FILLED with poor people and people of color.
so, this is about making poor neighborhoods more dangerous for the people who live there, and stopping the people who live there from making it their own.


Guys, this is my home town and I can tell you that growing up I was nearly hit by cars numerous times. We really need these, and if there’s anything that can be done to stop this prosecution please help!
